The Pioneer Press investigates the death of Father John Kaiser, a Minnesotan missionary in Kenya, who died mysteriously of a shotgun blast to the head alongside a road north of Nairobi in August 2000. The series reveals that Kaiser had undertaken a courageous campaign against President Daniel Moi. The stories refute the Kenyan authorities' conclusion that the priest committed suicide. "In fact, [we] were told by a member of the Kenyan government how he was killed by police officers," Laszewski reports.
